CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Meteorologists with the National Weather Service say flooding of “all variety and scales” is possible over the next few days in West Virginia with steady rain in the forecast.
Total rainfall from Thursday afternoon through Sunday afternoon is expected to range from 3.7 inches in the northern panhandle to just more than a half-inch in Bluefield.
The heavy rain along the Ohio River could cause a second round of flooding there. Meteorologists predict more than three inches of rain in Parkersburg and just below two inches in Huntington.
The statement from the NWS said “with saturated conditions, almost no area will be immune.”
The Ohio River flooded last weekend impacting Wheeling Island and locations down river including Parkersburg, Point Pleasant and Huntington.
